Saturday 28th July Claiming Bet !!

Not great week so far with two losing bets .Not sure why but the turf bets are not performing up to standard at the moment .With only one winner from 7 bets this season( 14.28%) . That compares with 10 out 26 on All Weather (38.46%)

Moving on to Saturday we have 1 mile 0-75 classified claimer for 3 and 4 year olds at Salisbury's evening meeting .Hopefully we can finish the week with winner on the turf.

6.40 SALISBURY 1 MILE 0-75 CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 5
10 runners declared for (0-75) 1 mile claimer on the turf at Salisbury .This looks quite competitive claimer with four main contenders .Benzanno,Mayo Lad,Purple N Gold , Aciano .

BENZANNO :Big improver since being fitted with hood ,winning 9 furlong handicap at Epsom last time in good style.Also finished good second at Epsom on his previous start on soft ground .Should go well if handling this faster ground.

MAYO LAD : Consistent sort ,hasn't finished outside the first three on his last 6 starts .Won 6 furlong handicap at Wolverhampton back in April .

PURPLE N GOLD :Won 9 furlong seller at Yarmouth earlier last month in good style ,though was very disappointing last time in claimer at Newmarket beaten 20 lenghs .Well treated at the weights.

ACIANO : Won 9 furlong seller at Wolverhampton earlier this month ,and finished fair second in simular race at Lingfield last time .Won on the turf last season at Doncaster and should be thereabouts.

VERDICT : Mayo Lad is very consistent performer and should go well here ,though has been beaten favorite on his last three starts and doesn't look the easiest horse to win with .Odds around 9-4 make little appeal .

Purple N Gold is best in at the weights ,though was very disappointing last time in claimer and will need to bounce back .

BENZANNO looks improved performer after putting in two solid runs in handicap company at Epsom recently .Has to prove he can handle this faster ground ,though looks to have the strongest form .odds around 7-2 look fair value.

Wednesday 25th July Claiming Bet !!

Again another slow start to the week with Monday's claiming bet on Red Highlites finishing disappointing fifth in 5 furlong claiming stakes at Beverley .The last few bets on the turf haven't really performed that well ,with all the recent winners coming on the All Weather .

Hopefully now the ground conditions have improved ,we can start to have a few more winners on the turf .

Moving onto Wednesday we have two claimers the 6F 2 year old claimer at Lingfield looks very difficult ,so going to concentrate on 5F claimer on the turf at Catterick .

5.00 CATTERICK 5F CLAIMING STAKES CLASS 6 :
9 runners declared for 5 furlong claimer at Catterick on Good/firm ground.This looks quite decent contest for class 6 race with two horses offically rated 90.The three main contenders are Foxy Music ,Partner & Crimea.

FOXY MUSIC :Fair sprinter on his day .Finished second twice this season ,including in class 2 handicap at Chester in May off mark 90 .Looks well treated at these weights and takes big drop in class . 

PARTNER :Had some fair form in Ireland 2009 /10 winning four times for David Marnane .Returned to form in May Winning class 2 handicap at Thirsk for Kevin Ryan ,though hasn't shown much on his last three starts . Takes big drop in class into claiming company for first time,though looks very inconsistent sort.

CRIMEA : Lightly raced 6-Y-0 .Not won for over 2 years ,though has been placed twice on poly track at Wolverhampton recently .Has decent record in claiming company ,including when winning claimer at Hamilton on fast ground by 7 lenghs.

VERDICT : Foxy Music is very well treated in this claimer 5LB clear at the weights and looks to have an obvious chance ,though doesn't win that often with record of 4 wins from 50 starts and all his best form has been on soft surface .Has to be repected taking big drop in class ,though odds around 5-4 don't look great value.

CRIMEA has plenty to find at these weights with Foxy Music ,though has proven record in this grade and fast ground conditions will suit .Trainer Dandy Nicholls also has good record with his runners in claimers this season 32% (6 winners from 19 runners) . At around the 5-1 mark looks the each-way value.

Monday 24th July Claiming Bet!!

On Monday we are back on the turf at Beverley with 5 furlong 2 year old claimer on ground described as good/firm .

6.30 BEVERLEY 5 FURLONG 2 YEAR OLD CLAIMING STAKES:
9 runners declared for 2 year old claimer over 5 furlongs at Beverley .This doesn't look the strongest claimer with Findog & Red Highlites looking the two main contenders .

FINDOG :Finished promising third on debut in 5 furlong maiden at Ripon ealier last month .That was fair effort after being slowly away and swerving at the start ,ran on strongly in closing stages .Should go well dropping into claiming company.

RED HIGHLITES : Ran good second in 5 furlong maiden at Catterick earlier this month showing plenty speed.Looked unsuited by heavy ground last time when finishing third in 5 furlong maiden at Hamilton .Should be suited by this faster ground .

VERDICT : Findog should improve for his debut third at Ripon and looks sure to go well in this weak looking claimer ,though there has to be big concern about the form of the Ollie Pears stable, having only had one winner since April (1 from 83 ) and has yet to train 2 year old winner this season (0 from 21 ) Odds around 6-4 don't look great value with the stable out form.

RED HIGHLITES looks solid here after finishing placed on his last two starts ,showing plenty speed on both starts .This faster ground should also suit better after getting bogged down in mud last time at Hamilton .Odds around 3-1 look fair value in this weak looking claimer .

MONDAY 23RD JULY CLAIMING BET :
RED HIGHLITES 6.30 BEVERLEY
0.50 PTS EACH-WAY @ 3-1 BET365 *
